The survival horror point-and-click game Five Nights at Freddy’s has been available on Steam since 2014, and it has completely taken over the world of video games since then. You assume the role of a character who works at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, often in the role of a security guard, in the FNAF video game series. The video game involves a cast of animated characters who, after the sun goes down, come to life and engage in gruesome activities. What could possibly be more terrifying than being pursued by a swarm of robotic cartoon animals who are out on killing you?
#8. FNAF Custom Night
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Custom Night has a gameplay mode. That is distinct from those of the other original games in the series. The beginning of the narrative inspired William Afton’s hell. And it takes place in a period of time following his death. Which occurs at the conclusion of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza Stimulator. In contrast to the previous games, Custom Night does not take place in a single area and only has one plot. In its place, the game offers a variety of wave-based gameplay options that may customized. It provides the players with the ability to choose from a wide variety of animatronics that have appeared in earlier FNAF games. The user may also choose the degree of difficulty in the game they are playing depending on what they think they are capable of handling in terms of how tough it will be to maneuver against their animatronic opponents. After you have decided on the animatronics to use and the degree of difficulty, they will begin to spawn.
Every animatronic has a unique minigame or strategy for surviving developed around it, which the player required to learn in case the animatronics attack. Although we have a lot of fun playing this game, it becomes quite difficult to stay alive as more and more animatronic enemies flood the screen. There are a sufficient amount of instances of jump scares. However, since you barraged with an excessive amount of assaults from animatronics, the element of suspense that was previously there is now absent, and as a result, you find yourself wanting to quit rather than continue. As spectators, one of the aspects of a game that we like most is its narrative progression. The buildup to a jump scare, followed by the fear itself when the player least expects it, is what makes a video game so terrifying. Imagine you have advance warning of the arrival of your foe, but the suspense is killing you.
#7. FNAF 3
In FNAF 3, the player assumes the position of a security guard in the futuristic amusement park Fazbear’s Fright. The amusement park is haunted by the spirit of serial murderer William Afton, who now occupies the body of an animatronic spring-trap animatronic in which he perished. Throughout the course of the game, William, the spring trap, stalks us along the hallways. The aim is to distract spring and trap William long enough for him to survive the horrible Five Nights at Freddy’s.
In this game, the remaining animatronics only appear as ghosts. Typically, these ghosts emerge when a camera feed switched, causing us to jump. Additionally, they are able to disable the power of vents and cameras that reveal our position to spring trap William. What makes this terrifying is continually pursued by these ghosts and knowing that the spring trap is looking over us via his office door or surveillance cameras. The surroundings include a dilapidated office and an amusement park that are a sickening shade of green. This game keeps players on the edge of their seats throughout.
#6. FNAF 2
The visual aesthetic of Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 deviates maybe the most from that of the first game in the series, as compared to any of the other sequels. When we evaluated how terrifying this game is, we immediately saw that the animatronics did not seem nearly as menacing as they had in the past. The lighter and brighter artwork that was used for each animatronic was chosen by the developer of FNAF, Scott Cawthon. They resembled mascots from Chuck-e-cheese or childplay and had the appearance of the dolls from such shows.
The fact that there are no jump scares in the game does not, however, imply that there are none. The game requires you enter the security office while wearing a Fazbear mask in the game. Then, all of a sudden, you look straight in front of you and notice animatronics appearing. The sensation of watching these terrifying animatronics come to life via the lenses that embedded in your mask is really unsettling. Even though we know that the animatronics are going to appear, the fact that the music box will continue to spin and play childish melodies makes for another unsettling part of the game. Mango, known as one of the most terrifying characters in the FNAF series, makes an appearance in this game.
Mango is made from a variety of discarded parts that are haphazardly bolted together. He is the giraffe animatronic that seems to be pink. His ability to leap at you while dangling and swinging from the ceiling is what makes him so terrifying. In spite of the fact that we are unable to give this game a higher rating, we do feel that there are some really terrifying sequences. I believe that a majority of players would find this game to be a greater challenge if some of the images had a darker color scheme.
#5. FNAF 6: Pizzeria Simulator
Most of the game’s fans taken aback by the Five Nights at Freddy’s: Pizzeria Simulator’s unconventional gameplay when it originally came out. It advertised as a free-to-play pizza simulator in the classic 8-bit style of the mysterious background minigames on the game’s steam website during the debut of the game. The initial part of the game takes place in a pixelated, two-dimensional world. And it features a bear that walks about a restaurant selling various dishes. However, after a little period of time, the game will compel you to take part in the standard five-night stay at Freddy’s. In this game, you take on the role of the manager of a brand new eatery. And your mission is to make it through the building’s ventilation system alive. You urged to do the usual responsibilities associated with the conclusion of your shift. Such as printing out the orders.
The issue with the game is that it has a large number of deadly animatronics. That have appeared in earlier games. Before each night, the player will discover discarded animatroni. That have unexplainably thrown in the alleyway. And it will be up to us to determine whether or not to salvage them. If you make a mistake while doing this salvage job. Then the animatronic rubbish will start to worry you and will become a persistent danger throughout your night shift. FNAF 6: Pizzeria Simulator included a setting that was really unnerving, as well as other moments from the game’s past. That were quite dark and disturbing. In most cases, a horrifying gaming experience may achieved by combining a compelling horror narrative. With the right amount and placement of jump scares.
#4. FNAF: Sister Location
In comparison to the franchise’s earlier entries, the fifth installment in the horror game series. FNAF Sister Location, takes a very different tack in terms of gameplay. At the time of its publication, fans split about how they felt about this novel approach. Instead of taking place in a single location with a straightforward gameplay loop built around it. Sister Location included a number of distinct areas that the player may explore. One of the gaming locations was within a warehouse called Circus Babies Entertainment and Rental. This was a place where children could hire animatronics for their birthday parties. The player’s goal is to make their way from a central hub area to various rooms across the facility. Each of which has a set of goals based on a smaller game that they must accomplish.
The fact that a significant portion of this game consists of awkward comedy and plot exposition is one of the game’s drawbacks. Also, we found that the player may go for extended stretches without being in any danger. Which makes the overall experience of the game a lot less nerve-wracking compared to the earlier FNAF games.
#3. FNAF 1
By far, the original Five Nights at Freddy’s is one of the scariest games we’ve ever played. With its unique combination of point-and-click controls and Animatronic dolls, this game exposed the globe to an entirely new experience. Freddy, Foxy, Bonnie, and Chica are the four primary characters that are animatronics. When it comes to Animatronics, there has always been a spooky uncanny element. This anxiety was taken to a whole new level by Scott Cawthon.
This game centers on the player as a security guard who must survive Five nights at the pizzeria against these devilish animatronics. After a period of time, these animatronics transform into psychopathic killers intent on torturing and killing. The player must remain alive until sunrise at 6 a.m., which occurs at 6 a.m. In this game, you’ll see Foxy rushing through the hallways of Pirates Cove using your surveillance cameras. Whenever you check the lights in this game, you may discover Bonnie and Chica peering at you from the entrances. Freddy will be waiting in the darkness for you at the end. Even though there have been several sequels to the original, this is still a classic and popular work.
#2. FNAF 4
It is the fact that the game plays on the concerns of those who are afraid of monsters lurking in their bedroom closets or beneath their beds. And that makes the fourth installment of the Five Nights at Freddy’s series. You play the role of a little kid who is terrified of the nighttime in this game. And your goal is to make it through the ordeal unscathed. There are scary animatronics hiding in the child’s chamber, such as Freddy, Bonnie, and Foxy from Nightmare on Elm Street. You can see that their designs are among the most terrifying of all the games in the gallery by looking at the picture below. The gameplay is also fairly challenging since the player required to check under both beds, as well as both doorways and closets, for any potential danger. You will also hear a slight breathing sound, which will tip you off as to where they may be hiding.
#1. FNAF Help Wanted
The most recent installment in the Five Nights at Freddy’s series, Five Nights at Freddy’s Help Wanted, is also the first FNAF game to be released commercially in Virtual Reality form. We placed right in front of these sinister animatronics. So, the addition of virtual reality to this game makes the experience ten times more terrifying than it would have been otherwise. You are experiencing the game through a virtual reality headset. So, you are only able to see a single straight line in front of you at any given time. The depth of each animatronic is another factor that contributes to the insanity-inducing fear factor. Because it’s virtual reality, it’s more three-dimensional than it’s ever been. So we can see the minute details of both the characters and the setting.
A terrifying new animatronic adversary known as Glitchtrap introduced in the game. Although there is still very little information available about him, there are videotapes that provide some insight into his past. It is generally believed that Glitchtrap was added to the game by scanning in old circuit boards. These boards held recollections of William Afton, and his legacy continues to live on in the coding of video games. He built a piece of software called malware. Overall, this is the most terrifying of all the official FNAF games. And we really hope that they decide to make more VR versions. So that the overall quality of the gameplay experience can improve for the benefit of the fans.
